Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Kodiak Alaska


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed to remove water from basements and crawlspaces.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

The majority of new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.
